Another 7018 restart tip

by MIchael Stewart

This tip eliminates having a file and works every time. When you are just finished with your weld flick the electrode. That ball at the end of the rod will pop off.

Then just pinch the flux and then restart it.

This is also a lot of fun when you have are flinging them at your fitter or anyone near by.

This is great for 7018 but works awesome with 308 309 wire.
